We hope you and your family are safe and healthy during this complicated and unprecedented COVID-19 public health pandemic.
If you have been a part of the Shorefront YM-YWHA’s year round and summer camp programming in the past, you know that we have prioritized providing your children safe, engaging and dynamic summer days filled with diverse activities, projects and trips.
The health and safety of everyone in our camp community has and always will be our highest priority and operating mandate. As we rapidly approach the summer months of 2020, the normal challenge of operating a full-day summer camp program using the Shorefront Y’s facility as its home base is overshadowed by the additional mandatory health, safety, and hygiene protocols being appropriately required by regulatory bodies at the NY State and NYC levels during this pandemic.
We know this has been a challenging time for everyone in our community, so we have explored every possible way to reliably operate our summer day camp. It is with a heavy heart and great disappointment that we announce our decision not to run our traditional full day Summer Camp program for the 2020 season.
We are working on developing smaller group, shorter term, summer-fun experiences with children and families during the upcoming months and will keep you informed of these plans and opportunities.
Although this has been difficult decision for our administration, staff, and board of directors, we know it is the right decision for summer 2020 for the Shorefront YM-YWHA.
Safeguarding the health and safety of all children in our care as well as assuring the health and safety of our camp staff is the core value underpinning this most difficult decision.
